Macon County Blueways Initiative

In partnership with Macon County Parks and Recreation, Macon SWCD will install five canoe launches and one stream access area at three Macon County Recreation Parks.

We will use this grant to install 5 canoe accesses and one stream access.  In conjunction with a previous Duke Water Resources Grant this will tie together more than five stream miles of waterways in Macon County into a navigable “Blueway”.  Macon County and Macon SWCD are excited about this opportunity to increase public use of, and education regarding, the water resources of our county.
